Natural materials create an innovative structure with positive effects on the microclimate.
Concrete is used only in the basement and cores, leaving a synergy of wood and steel to take centre stage.
At WELCOME, the interaction of plants and micro-organisms ‘biofilters’ the air.
Created by the neuro-botanist Stefano Mancuso and PNAT – a company of designers and biologists associated with the University of Florence – the Air Factory is a biomachine that purifies indoor air by using plants to remove pollutants.
At WELCOME, plants become the heart of technology: the Air Factory ensures that the air is clean and safe throughout the almost 4,000m2 of the building, meaning that the ventilation rate can be reduced and energy therefore saved.

Work is already underway.
WELCOME is designed and managed to take into account its impact and minimize CO2 emissions throughout its life cycle.
For a regenerative future, WELCOME uses state-of-the-art systems and wood in its structure, a regenerable material with low energy expenditure.
WELCOME will offset the emissions produced by planting trees in the Milan area or elsewhere and by financing the transformation of thermoelectric plants into renewable energy plants.
Regeneration means experimenting with low environmental impact technical solutions capable of creating new relational models and lifestyles. For a positive impact on the local area.
